Oh, hey there. In case you don’t have access to cable or a smartphone, last week (and a half) was New York Fashion Week. The fashion elite have since jetted off to London for round two, but here’s a little sneak peak into what was my NYFW experience. I kept things pretty quiet on Instagram as when I scrolled through my own feed, I was bombarded with photo after photo… after photo of the shows. I tried to snap shots of things that not everyone was capturing- like bored little girls in the front row and the contents of my bag. This wasn’t my first rodeo and I can wax poetic like all of those annoying New Yorkers who recall a city of a different era. A city that still had a little grit and required more than a weird outfit to garner getting papped outside Lincoln Center. (Did you see the Jimmy Fallon bit?). So, while I miss when Fashion Week was more about fashion that it was fluff, I am happy to have been a part of another New York ritual.
